Beauty: the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit. In other words, our Prix Merlot. This wine is lovely from first glance. The garnet hue in the glass is entrancing. Swirling said glass releases a profusion of wonderful aromas amongst them are raspberry bramble, lavender and soft forest floor. Once this wine moves onto the palate the allure continues with warm bright red fruits with a trace of dusty cocoa and a hint of rose. The rich round tannins are bold yet silky and compliment a lingering finish with grace and elegance.
